we can do this the easy way or the hard way." [ laughter and applause ] this is pretty big. it's being reported that "the new york times" has a bombshell audio tape of donald trump that could deal a serious blow to his campaign. yeah. so far they refuse to release the tape, but we were able to pull a few strings and get a a copy. >> steve: really? wow. how -- how fortunate. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: isn't that amazing. we have the best producers and researchers out there. >> steve: wow. >> jimmy: and they got it. well, here, take a listen to this audio tape. >> okay, so we're off the record now, right? >> yeah, sure. >> phew. i can finally take this dead badger off my head. >> you velcro a wig to your head? >> what else am i gonna do, use staples? >> no, of course not. i think most of us just would like to hear some specifics, you know, with regards to your policy on immigration. >> i've gotta be honest with you. i 100% have no idea what i'm saying out there.
and let the words fly out of my face hole. >> so then you're not going to build a wall? >> no way, jose. i just like saying the word "wall." try it. >> uh, wall. >> no, no, like this. wall-l-l-l. >> wall-l. >> now you go up an octave. >> both: wall-l-l. >> that's close enough, close enough. how's it feel? >> feels nice. >> yeah, here. hold my eyebrows.

[ laughter ]
not that honest. meanwhile, kylie jenner is looking to trademark her first name in the u.s. the singer kylie minogue is fighting it saying that would confuse her fans. take a look at what she said. i disagree with kylie about trying to trademark the name kylie. after she said that, several other celebrities were asked to comment on that story. miley cyrus said, "i agree with kylie about kylie."

[ laughter ] good luck with that old plane, though. if you have kids, you might want to listen to this. i saw that in an effort to better represent modern families, lego created a stay at home dad figure. the only problem is once you snap it on to the lego couch, it won't come off. [ laughter and applause ] that's right, lego created a a stay at home dad figure. the stay at home dad snaps into other legos and also snaps when you ask him what he does for a a living. [ laughter ] i'm working on it! and finally, lawmakers in new hampshire are now backing a a bill that would make it illegal for women to expose

[ laughter and applause ] maybe in the next update -- >> steve: maybe. >> jimmy: maybe in the next update they'll do that. pro, we can now communicate by posting simple drawings on other people's walls. con, so basically we've gone back to being cavemen.

yellow cartoon faces that go from laughter to anger to smiling to crying. con, it's like watching pacman have a complete nervous breakdown. [ laughter ] wacka, wacka, wacka. pro, clicking like after finding out an old friend got a a new job. con, clicking love after finding out he got fat. [ laughter and applause ] can't all be working for you, buddy. pro, there's now an easier way to poke someone. con, it's called signing up for tinder. oh. pro, clicking wow on your friend's engagement. con, because they don't have a a wow, i thought you'd be single forever button. not a bad idea. and finally, pro, if something makes you happy, you press the like button. if something makes you laugh, you press the haha button. con, if something that makes you go ha ha at first, then it
and all of a sudden it's not really funny anymore and this could actually happen, then you press the trump button. there you go -- [ cheers and applause ] that is the pros and cons. we'll be right back with margot robbie!
